-To my happy surprise, I happened to find a pretty good space shooter for the C128 and its VDC chip (aka 80 column mode). The complete title of the game is, **Astra - Invasion 3**.  I have yet to find Invasion 1 or 2, but I'll keep looking.+{{ :​reviews:​astra_1b.png?​direct&​350|}} ​To my happy surprise, I happened to find a pretty good space shooter for the C128 and its VDC chip (aka 80 column mode).

-I have just discovered that this game was actually a cabinet video game, developed by Konami in 1979, called [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Astro_Invader|Astro Invaders]], or //​Kamikaze//​ in Japan. ​ I never even heard of this game before. ​ From the looks of it, I would say that the C128 version is even better than the original.+I have just discovered that this game was actually a cabinet video game, developed by Konami in 1979, called [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Astro_Invader|Astro Invaders]], or //​Kamikaze//​ in Japan. ​ I never heard of this game before. ​ From the looks of it, I would say that the C128 version is even better than the original.
